The Implementing Sustainability – Energy and Environmental Management & Best Practices Conference will be the first to address the reality of implementing the energy and environmental legs of corporate and institutional sustainability plans and objectives. This will be accomplished through a discussion of national policy drivers, energy and environmental technological alternatives, integrated energy and environmental management and implementation best practices. More simply stated, the conference where the “Rubber” of the energy and environmental sustainability drivers hits the “Road” of reality and implementation at the plant energy operations level.
This conference will address the Technologies and strategies for implementing corporate and institutional sustainability goals and objectives based on national policy drivers in an age of a demand for transparency and demonstration by an educated and activist public. Subjects to be considered will be: Combined Heat and Power (CHP), distributed energy, Microgrids, advanced maintenance and control systems, renewable energy and storage, and demonstration of environmental benefits via the use ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 environmental and energy management systems respectfully.
As we see the powerhouse and its issues changing from a focus more toward one of regulatory development to one more of environmental compliance, energy operations and performance and energy and environmental transparency and sustainability, the public demand and expectation will change from one of talk and policy development to one where only actual accomplishments and real stories will be accepted. As the title of the conference suggests, this conference does not address the generation and development of sustainability goals and objectives for anyone. It will, however, address how the energy and environmental portion of those goals and objectives can be implemented in the most effective and efficient way through the sharing and discussion of best practices, technological applications and management practices.
